Thanks for visiting my blog. I’m Ada, a lover of fabrics. Actually, I’m obsessed with fabrics!
We all know that saying, “the way you dress is how you’ll be addressed.” I completely agree, but I will take it further and say, “…and your cloth fabric makes the respect thick”. Does that rhyme? Probably not, but hey, you get the point!
I’ve always loved fashion. I played many dress-up games with my dolls when I was a kid, and my love for fashion grew. My mum’s fashion designing business made fabrics and sewing a huge part of my life growing up.
However, I realized something.
While sewing was fun, it wasn’t really my thing. I was more interested in knowing how each fabric complimented the other. This led me to do more fabric research, and while I didn’t completely leave drop sewing, I focused more on making fashion choices based on fabric textures, prints, and patterns.
Here’s a picture of the wedding gowns I made years ago with various fabrics; satin, organza, and lace. You can see more on my very first blog NahWahcouture. I created NahWah back when I wanted to be the next Pnina Tornai 🙂 My dreams have changed, but my passion for fabrics hasn’t!
I realized there might be people interested in fabrics just like me, so I created this blog. It doesn’t matter what you’re looking for. As long as it’s fabric-related, you’ll find it here.
My favorite fabric remains the African Ankara fabric. It’s so rich in patterns and culture!
I’ve spent over 8 years researching and working with various fabrics. I know how each one feels and the best ways to use them to elevate your looks from 0 to 100 real quick.
